        Out of Africa

      New York: Random House, 1938. First Printing. Hardcover. Fine+/Fine+. A superlative First Edition (so stated) of the author's most renowned book. 8vo: x,389,[1]pp. Publisher's three-quarter orange cloth, flamingo stamped in gilt to upper board, glossy black cloth spine lettered and decorated in gilt, top edge stained moss-green, fore-edge untrimmed, title page in moss-green and black; pictorial dust jacket priced $2.75. Very Fine (apparently unread), tight and square, crisp, clean pages throughout, with barely a hint of the usual toning to gutters; Very Fine, truly superb example of the jacket, completely fresh and bright without a trace of fading. Time 100. Modern Library 100. Dinesen?s second book, part novel, mostly memoir of her 19 years in Africa?I had a farm, at the foot of the Ngong Hills. "In 1937, the notion of a Danish woman who would serve as head of a vast African coffee plantation seemed only slightly less exotic than the notion of one who might spend her life in the Ngong hills of Kenya among the Kikuyu and Maasai. 'Here at long last one was in a position not to give a damn for all conventions, here was a new kind of freedom,' wrote the divorced, fiercely independent Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke. Her memoir depicts the close relationships she fostered among the men who worked for her, giving African characters a complexity and dignity not found in other colonial texts. The occasional brutality and profound loss that characterize colonial life do not overshadow the serenity with which Blixen-Finecke writes, fostering wanderlust in anyone who reads her book." (Time 100) The Oscar-winning film (1985), starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, was based more on Judith Thurman?s biography of Dinesen than on the book, in which Dinesen's romance with Denys Finch-Hatton is mentioned only obliquely. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Éléments de police scientifique

      4 volumes in-4 : I de 96 p. Paris, Hermann & Cie, 1938-1940, , 4 volumes in-4 : I de 96 p. et 8 pl.; II de 88p, 22pl. et 1pl. dépliante; III de 96p. et 21pl.; IV de 118p. et 16pl, broché, Série COMPLÈTE des "Actualités scientifiques et industrielles" consacrée à la Police scientifique et dirigée par Charles Sannié (1896-1957), médecin, oncologue et directeur du Service de l'Identité judiciaire de la Préfecture de Police à Paris. Charles Guérin médecin, collabore à la série. Les quatre volumes constituent un exposé complet des procédés de police scientifique pratiqués par le service de l'Identité Judiciaire de la Préfecture de Police à Paris. Leurs pratiques s'inspirent directement de l'école de Bertillon, criminologue à l'origine de l'anthropométrie judiciaire utilisée en France jusque dans les années 1970. Cette méthode d'identification repose "d'une part, sur la création d'un fichier de tous les détenus ou personnes ayant fait l'objet d'une arrestation, chaque fiche contenant une photographie profil-face et divers renseignements comme la couleur de l'iris, (...) les empreintes digitales (...) et, d'autre part, sur la mise au point d'un système de classement des fiches à partir des données anthropométriques". Cette intéressante série sur la criminalistique fournit aussi des explications sur certaines notions juridiques, sur le fonctionnement de l'administration judiciaire de l'époque, sur la classification des données et sur les abréviations usitées pour les éléments signalétiques. Les planches présentent des reproductions photographiques mettant en scène les prises de mensurations (taille, tête, certains membres comme le médius gauche, empreintes digitales, etc.) préconisées dans l'identification judiciaire. La description physique de l'individu (traits et particularités du visage puis forme de l'oreille droite et du crâne, type de cheveux, tatouages ou cicatrices, etc.) s'appuie sur l'anthropométrie photographique et sur des tableaux synoptiques des traits physionomiques. Exemplaires ayant appartenu à Jacques Delarue (1919-2014), résistant, historien et ancien commissaire de Police. On joint : - une fiche individuelle d'identification judiciaire vierge - 10 pages cartonnées manuscrites sur lesquelles sont détaillées les diverses particularités physiques du visage : contour général de la tête, oreille, nez, front, menton, sourcils, paupières, globes oculaires, lèvres, bouche, rides - une reproduction photographique du derme et des différentes couches de l'épiderme, avec annotations - un papier blanc recouvert d'encre, sur lequel on distingue des empreintes digitales. Le papier est accompagné d'une feuille où est visible l'empreinte d'une main - une fiche dactyloscopique vierge Nombreuses figures et tableaux dans le texte. Crime et châtiment, sous la direction de Jean Clair, p. 272. Dos du volume II cassé, première de couverture détachée.

        Le masochisme (Etude historique, clinique, psychogénétique et thérapeutique)

      123, (3)pp. Paris, Ed. Denoël, 1938, in-8, 123, (3)pp, br, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de ce rapport présenté à la 10e Conférence des psychoanalystes de langue française à l'hôpital Sainte-Anne. Sacha Nacht (1901-1977) fut longtemps président de la Société psychanalytique de Paris. Farouche partisan de la formation médicale des psychanalystes, il fut au coeur de la rupture de 1953 qui amena Jacques Lacan à fonder la Société française de psychanalyse. Dans cet ouvrage, le masochiste dont parle Sacha Nacht à la suite de Freud n'est pas un pervers sexuel, mais un névrosé. Bel exemplaire.

        Enemies of Promise

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd.,, 1938. Octavo. Original black cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Bottom corners of boards slightly discoloured, faint spotting to endpapers and endleaves. An excellent copy in a jacket with toned spine panel and tiny closed tear with tape repair to the verso. First edition, first impression, uncommon in the dust jacket. "Connolly made a surer reputation [than with his debut novel The Rock Pool (1936)] with Enemies of Promise (1938). This work is part literary criticism, part general observations on the life of the writer, part childhood autobiography, part astute assessment of the precocity forced on English children by public schools. It is given unity by its enquiry into how 'to write a book that will hold good for ten years afterwards'. It is almost universally recognized as having anatomized this complex subject brilliantly" (ODNB).

        Autographs on Concert Program from their historic voyage away from Europe

      1938. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A rare relic of the von Trapp family's voyage from Europe on board the SS American, signed by matriarch Maria Augusta van Trapp, and children Agathe, Rupert, Maria, Werner, Hedwig, Johanna, Martina, and Elenore, and one other Trapp family member, as well as by their beloved conductor, Father Franz Wasner. Some browning and creasing, evidence of prior album mounting; very good. The signatures on the verso of a program from a concert on board the SS American Farmer, October 15, 1938, a photo postcard of the Trapp Family Music Camp, Stowe, Vermont and a piece of sheet music from their repertoire.The classic film The Sound of Music was based on their experiences escaping the Nazi invasion of Austria. "Four months after the Nazi invasion, the von Trapps worked in earnest to make their discreet plans to emigrate....Although leaving Austria permanently would be difficult, the von Trapps were blessed, for they had the one thing that most refugees can only dream about: a job, or at least a contract. A year earlier, an American impresario named Charles L. Wagner had offered the choir a chance to sing in New York. This offer would now give them sanctuary in the new world. Their beloved Father Wasner got permission from his superiors to join them. In August 1938, each family member packed one rucksack, pretending that they were going on family vacation in Italy...Georg von Trapp had been born in his passport allowed him and his family to travel freely across the border. The family and Father Wasner calmly boarded a train which took them into the south Tryol, part of Italy. The next day, the border was closed. Their timing, as befits a close-harmony group, was again impeccable....Eventually, Wagner wired them their money and, on October 7, 1938, they traveled to London to board the SS American Farmer, sailing to New York."

      München, Zentralverlag der NSDAP Frz.Eher Nachf., 1938 - Vollständige Ausgabe im Original Verlagshandeinband (Ganzleder / Leder / OGLdr / OLdr / Ldr im Format 13 x 19,2 cm) mit dekoriertem Rücken- und Deckeltitel sowie Kopfsilberschnitt, 469 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

      Gr.-8. Mit zahlreichen, teils farbigen Abbildungen u. einigen Noten, zusammen 33 lose beiliegende, teils farbige "Kunstbeilagen", andere Kunstbeilagen in den frühen Hefte eingebunden. OKart.

Hoffmann-Forschung.- Die "Mitteilungen" erschienen zuerst als ein Vereinsorgan mit geringer Verbreitung, ihr Inhalt "beschränkte sich im wesentlichen auf biographische Arbeiten, Detailstudien und Berichten aus dem Leben der Gesellschaft". Erst als in den siebziger Jahren Wulf Segebrecht die Schriftleitung übernahm, entwickelten sich die "Mitteilungen" zu einem bedeutenden Organ der Hoffmann-Forschung, das führende Forscher mit Beiträgen belieferten, das in einem umfangreichen Rezensionsteil die Wege der Forschung mit aufmerksamer Kritik kommentierte. Das neu gegründete "Hoffmann-Jahrbuch" hat das weitergesteckte "Ziel, zum Zentrum der Hoffmann-Forschung zu werden. Es will den Diskussionen um den Autor, sein Werk und dessen Kontexte ein Forum bieten, offen sein für Spezialstudien wie für Arbeiten, die über Hoffmann hinausgreifen ... und so noch mehr als bisher ein Forum der internationalen Hoffmann-Forschung sein". Dieses Jahrbuch wird herausgegeben von H. Steinecke, F. Loquai, St. P. Ster, D. Kremer u.a.

      1938. Hi, This lot is an Original 1938 Hardback Wisden . It is in very good condition, the first of the new hardbacks. 1938 and 39 do tend to be quite poor this is far better than most for the year. The front and spine gilt is excellent for a poor year slight fading to the spine if being picky, the boards are very good, there are a few light marks mainly to the front (part cup of tea) and a hexagonal mark to the bottom of the spine but still nice boards. The internal pages are fabulous, slight eeakness to the hinges but far from breaking (which is common). By far superior to many of the same year. Hard to find in good condition, this is not too far off excellent.

        Death in the Making

      New York: Covici Friede, (1938) - 4to (279 × 215 mm), pp.[96]. 148 black-and-white photographs by Capa and Gerda Taro. Arrangement [i.e. layout] by André Kertész. Preface by Jay Allen, captions by Capa. Plain endpapers. Drab olive cloth-covered boards, titles in black; endemic toning to pages, nick to cloth at fore-edge. Black-and-white photo-illustrated dust-jacket, printed in red and black; spine lightly sunned, chipped at head and foot of spine, edges, and corners, lower portion of front panel split at spine-fold. A fine copy in an unrestored example of the rare dust-jacket. First edition. In the summer of 1936, Robert Capa made the first of several trips to Spain to cover the civil war that had recently broken out there. He was accompanied by his lover Gerda Taro, a talented young photographer who was probably the first woman to photograph on the front line, she was also the first to be killed in the course of her work when she was accidentally crushed by a tank near Brunete in July 1937. The layout of Death in the Making is by André Kertész, Capa&#146;s friend, mentor and fellow Hungarian. Shortly after he arrived in Paris in the spring of 1934, whilst living in near poverty, Capa met Kertész, who loaned him money, found him work, and taught him about photography. It was also in Paris at around this time that Capa met Henri Cartier-Bresson and David &#145;Chim&#146; Szymin (Seymour). The scarce dust-jacket features Capa&#146;s iconic photograph of a Republican soldier at the precise moment of his death. Death in the Making contains not just Capa&#146;s own photographs, including many that defined and revolutionised modern war photography, but also a number by Taro, and in many ways this book is her memorial, as Capa&#146;s eloquent printed dedication declares: &#145;For Gerda Taro, who spent one year at the Spanish Front, and who stayed on.

        14 Christmas Cards from Robert Frost to Wallace and Mary Stegner

      New York: Spiral Press. Very Good. First Separate Edition. Stapled wraps. Collection of 14 Christmas Cards from Robert Frost to the Stegner Family. Robert Frost was both a father-like figure and mentor to a young Wallace Stegner, having met Frost in 1938 at the Bread Loaf Writers Conference in Vermont. Frost had begun the tradition of printing holiday greeting booklets in 1929, producing 35 issues at Spiral Press in New York, thru 1962. While these 'cards' are not rare (in latter years, as many as 17,000 copies were printed) , the majority of cards were distributed by Frost's publisher, colleagues and friends, as indicated by the names printed on the title page. Hence, cards imprinted with Frost's name are not common and inscribed cards by Frost are relatively uncommon. This collection includes cards (while Barrett calls these cards, each is a fine letterpress booklet, often with fine woodblocks and multiple colors of ink and are each small treasures) from 1940, 1946, 1947 (inscribed) ,1948 (inscribed) , 1949 (inscribed) , 1950, 1951 (inscribed) , 1953 (inscribed) , 1956,1957, 1959, 1960, 1961 and 1962. Collection also includes news clippings about Frost, publicity photos, copies of letters to and from Stegner regarding Frost, a copy of Stegner's article titled "Robert Frost & Bernard DeVoto", and a 60 minute cassette tape of Frost reading (unknown date or location but good quality). This collection acquired from the Stegner family. All booklets in very good condition or better. Scans upon request. ; Various; Signed by Author .

        Albert Richard Football Map.

      Milwaukee, WI.: Albert Richard Co.. 1938.. Color poster, pictorial / pictographic map, 19 x 26 inches (49 x 66 cm). Brown and white illustrations and text on verso. Light creasing from rolling, light toning and wear to edges, overall very good condition. Eye-catching pictorial map proudly proclaiming America's passion for college football, with a "Key to Official College Nicknames" with 140 listings (lower centre of map). On the verso is a listing of The Albert Richard All-American Team of the 1937 season, and the reader is invited to "join in selecting this year's Albert Richard All-American Team - to share in awarding this honor to football's outstanding stars of 1938." Also on the verso are illustrations and descriptions of rugged outerwear from this manufacturer of men's clothing. Albert Richard Co. published this series of football maps from the late 1930s to early 1950s, all brightly colored and full of information for the football fan. These pictorial map posters combine great graphics with fascinating information and an interesting historical spin. In fact the 1941 map in the series is documented in "Eyes of the Nation: A Visual History of the United States" (2004) by Vincent Virga and Alan Brinkley: "Derived from the nineteenth-century English games of soccer and rugby, American football emerged as an inter-collegiate sport in the 1870s and as a professional sport in the 1890s. This pictorial map demonstrates how popular football had become by the beginning of World War II. With a primary emphasis on the collegiate side of the sport, with team nicknames, 1940 season records, and major conference championships, it also documents the major professional clubs - only ten at the time. The map carries the endorsement of the noted sports writer Grantland Rice, and reports his selections for the 1940 All-America team." .
